It seems that the Nexus One isn’t extinct to the general public after all, well, in Canada at least. Canadian carrier Moblicity has announced they will be offering the Nexus One to their customers, but with a small catch. The device comes sans any subsidies, so customers will have to fork out $550 Loonies (or 225 Toonies) to get one.
Of course, the Nexus One will ship with Android 2.2, and is likely to be first in line when 3.0 (Gingerbread) comes out. Continue after the break for the full presser.

As Samsung continues it’s universal domination with a single handset, it looks like Bell is the latest carrier to be assimilated – er, graced with the presence, that is… of the Samsung Galaxy S, this time shining through as the Vibrant (like T-Mobile).
The wireless carrier is offering the phone for $149 on a 3-year contract, or $499.95 without a commitment. Another pretty cool deal: They’re offering up a pair of tickets, airfare and accommodations to go see Lady Gaga if you purchase one soon.
So what are you waiting for? Go check out the deal at the source link listed below.
If you haven’t checked out the Telus website today then you might have missed the HTC Desire sitting nice and pretty in the smartphone section which is available today. The phone is available from $80 with a 3-year contract, and includes a charging cable as well as an 8GB SD Card in the box. The webpage lists features like 7 homescreens, live social media updates, viewing rich webpages with flash support, and access to many Android apps. The phone is pretty standard on the hardware front; 3.7″ 800×480 LCD screen, 512 RAM, and ROM, as well as a 5 MP camera. Pretty good for $80. What do you think? Are you getting this phone?

The Samsung Galaxy S, Samsung’s seemingly innocent attempt at taking over the mobile universe, is now on it’s way to another carrier. Looks like Bell will be carrying the increasingly popular handset for $149.99 on a new 3 year contract. The handset coming to Bell seems to be the full on Galaxy S experience, complete with front facing camera, instead of the pseudo-complete version at T-Mobile, slated the Vibrant.
The handset can be purchased contract-free for $499.99. Not a bad price in our opinion, considering everything you get under the hood. The device has been announced to be available ala Bell August 6th. For official pricing and date, check out the source link below.
Rogers, one of the most popular carriers in Canada, is slated to be releasing a $40 wireless plan, tailored specifically for students. Among the phones in this plan are three Android phones, one of which (The Motorola Flipout) is a newcomer to Rogers’ game. The $40 plan includes:
Unlimited My4 local calling
Unlimited Picture and Video Messaging
Unlimited Social Networking on Facebook, Twitter and MySpace
A Wal-Mart employee in Canada snapped a pretty interesting picture for us to see. It is a picture of pricing for the HTC Desire on TELUS with no contract. The price is an amazing $448.83 Canadian ($435.31 for us in the U.S.). That is one killer price for an Android device with the specs as the Desire.
Still no word on availability yet and as you can see in the photo no current stock. This does confirm that it is coming soon though so get your wallets ready you time is near.
Like manufacturer, like carrier… that is how the old saying goes, right? Well, either way, Bell Canada has decided that Samsung has the right idea, and is now offering a free Samsung Vibrant every day until August 6th. Entry is simple: just sign up over at Bell Canada’s registration page (Canadians only?), and then sit back, relax, and cross your fingers.
